Earlier this week, the Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that they are extending the grace period to renew flood insurance. The extension is now 120 days; previously, it was 30 days. This change is directly due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the financial burden it has caused to many households. The extension applies to NFIP flood insurance policies scheduled to end between February 13 and June 15, 2020.
